As a Recruit
Scott joined his twin brother Brad as a Georgia Tech commit, selecting Tech the same day as Brad. Standing at 6'4" 275 lbs., Scott was rated as a three-star recruit by both 247Sports (0.8342) and Rivals (5.5). He committed to Tech over offers from Georgia Southern, Louisville and Appalachian State. He and his brother come to Tech from Etowah High School in Woodstock, GA.
From his film, I noticed a few things. First, he's not always very quick off of the snap. There were some plays where the offense would snap the ball and he'd be in the backfield, but there would be others where it would take him a split-second to get off the line. He'll need to work on those reflexes to succeed at this level consistently. When he does get off the snap quickly, he does a great job of showing off his strength. I also love that he has no problem dropping back if he knows that he won't get to the QB. That's evident from the very first play where he drops back and then picks off the QB.
What to Expect
He'll definitely redshirt this year. He is just simply not ready to play right away. He'll be a valuable rotational guy in the future. But with Kyle Cerge-Henderson and Brentavious Glanton, I don't see Scott starting any time soon.
Welcome to the Flats, Scott! It's great to have you!
What do y'all think of Scott's film? What kind of impact will he make on the Flats?
